Data provenance

The data we’ll be using throughout the tutorial comes from the following article:

Döbert, T.F., Webber, B.L., Sugau, J.B., Dickinson, K.J.M. and Didham, R.K. (2017), Logging increases the functional and phylogenetic dispersion of understorey plant communities in tropical lowland rain forest. J Ecol, 105: 1235-1245. https://doi.org/10.1111/1365-2745.12794

The data has been deposited on a open data repository called dryad with the following reference:
